Subject: Correction to another review
Ralph Morgan, not Frank Morgan, is the star of this. Other actors: Ben Alexander, Kay Linaker, Eddie Acuff, and Charles Brokaw.

Subject: Do anything else.
Young man is innocently thrown into the hole. So far, so bad. Out again he is not better, morally speaking. He takes revenge against the father of the girl he loves. Highly unrealistic, bad stage acting and a fake happy end. Wasted celluloid.

Subject: Young Man Didn't Steal The Money
Young man goes to jail for embezzlement, but he wasn't guilty. When his boss realizes this a few years later, and has him released, he schemes to have the boss framed for embezzlement himself. Love interest: young man and bosses daughter. All's well in the end. Interesting characters; more depth and diversity than you'd expect.

Subject: Worth watching.
This was a little rough, but worth watching. The plot was good and the acting was tolerable, especially that of the leading lady.

Subject: mid-week delight
When Monogram came back out into its own after their participation in the set-up of Republic Pictures and Trem Carr's producing for the "New Universal", this was the perfect type of mid-week melodrama that small theatre owners craved to draw in the adult audiences. It was well made,had a nice mix of stars (Frank Morgan, Eddie Acuff) and newcomers. Yes, Ben Alexander, later of Dragnet could act. The productionvalues were very good, especially for Monogram. This particular print is excellent. The ending was quick and maybe too hokey, but the editor, the producer (Scott Dunlap) and more importantly the theatre owners were looking at the clock. Monogram had its finger on the pulse of its audience and this picture and Monograms' subsequent success proves it. It's a keeper.
